Winter Table Groups / Classes

Tables are about taking a ‘believer in Jesus’ and moving them towards ‘looking more like Jesus'

Discipleship is not a destination, it’s a direction.

First Church Tables are about taking a ‘believer in Jesus’ and moving them towards ‘looking more and more like Jesus’.

First Church Tables is a place where your belief begins to become part of the DNA of who you are in your everyday life, always growing in the direction toward Jesus.

Your First Church Table will meet once each week for a few months, at the church or in someone’s home. You’ll talk through a book, scripture or just life. There are First Church Tables for adults in several stages in their life.

We also offer Academy Classes for those who prefer a classroom style learning environment.

Depending on the Table Group you choose, we offer Children's Programming for kids of all ages.

A great place to start

St. Joseph Campus, Saturday mornings, 9:00am-11:00am - starts January 5th

Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

Looking for Lovely (Women's Table Group)

St. Joseph Campus, Wednesday mornings, 9:30am-11:15am - starts January 9th

St. Joseph Campus, Wednesday evenings, 6:30pm-8:00pm - starts January 9th

In Looking for Lovely, Annie F. Downs shares personal stories, biblical truth, and examples of how others have courageously walked the path God paved for their lives by remembering all God had done, loving what was right in front of them, and seeing God in the everyday—whether that be nature, friends, or the face they see in the mirror.

Intensely personal, yet incredibly powerful, Looking for Lovely will spark transformative conversations and life changing patterns. No matter who you are and what path God has you on, we all need to remember the lovely, fight to finish, and find beautiful in our every day!

Jesus' Farewell Discourse (Men's Table Group)

St. Joseph Campus, Wednesday evenings, 6:30pm-8:00pm - starts January 9th

Knowing the time was fast approaching for Him to depart this world, Jesus spent His final hours with His closest friends. As the disciples sat with their Master, unaware of what would soon take place, Jesus served them, taught them, and prayed for them. In this course, we will see a vivid picture of the disciples' final moments with their Savior. Carefully walking through John 13–17, we will be reminded of the centrality of Christ in all of life. Video lessons by Dr. Sinclair Ferguson will be followed by small group discussions, prayer, and personal application.

Married People Connect - The Gospel According to Jonah

St. Joseph Campus, Wednesday evenings, 6:30pm–8:00pm - Starts January 9th

Stevensville Campus, Sunday mornings, 9:30am-11:00am - Starts January 13th

This 6 week study invites us into a world fraught with missteps, disobedience, idolatry, and mistaken "identity." It's a world most of us would recognize in our own lives. But in the world of Jonah, we also get a picture of Jesus and a God that pursues us relentlessly. Through this study, we have a chance to recognize the "Jonah" in ourselves and channel this revelation into a greater passion for inviting others into the same journey. 

Loveology (Singles Table group)

St. Joseph Campus, Wednesday evenings, 6:30pm-8:00pm - Starts January 9th

In the beginning, God created Adam. Then he made Eve. And ever since we've been picking up the pieces. Loveology is just that—a theology of love. With an autobiographical thread that turns a book into a story, pastor and speaker John Mark Comer asks the hard questions and gives answers rooted in scripture. Single? Never Married? Single Again? This class is for you.

Empowered By God

St. Joseph Campus, Wednesday evenings, 6:30-8:00pm - Starts January 9th

For men and women. As a believer of Jesus, the Holy Spirit dwells in you; and all believers can be a vessel for the healing miracles of God.  Learn how to yield and walk in the anointing and power of God to bring about His purposes on earth. Men and women will be equipped to grow closer with God, learn and discern His voice, experience and encounter God, follow the Holy Spirit’s leading, and do the miraculous work of Jesus.

Grace: More than we deserve, Greater than we imagine.

Benton Heights Campus, Sunday mornings, 9:30am-10:30am - Starts January 6th

Don't settle for a wimpy grace. This study takes you on a journey to discover the depth of God's grace - greater than you can imagine, more than you deserve, and all that you need. Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace? God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-down-ness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid to die to ready to fly. Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.

The Life of Joseph

St. Joseph Campus, Room 7-8, Sunday Mornings - 11:00am - Ongoing

For men and women. As we study the Life of Joseph we will venture through Genesis chapters 37-50 exploring Joseph’s life and his character as he faced hatred from his brothers, being sold into slavery, false accusations, imprisonment, and then rising to a position of national power. Joseph’s life is an example of courage, integrity, and of forgiveness and restoration that we will learn from and apply to our own lives. We will also see God’s guidance, protection, and sovereignty over Joseph and his family and the people of Israel. 

Academy Classes

Bridges (Older Adult Class)

St. Joseph Campus Rooms 7-8, Sunday Mornings, 11:00am - Ongoing

Join us as we study Love and Trust. Our relationship with The Lord is based on love and trust. Because of God’s deep love, we can trust our very lives to Him. This love was powerfully demonstrated through the gift of Jesus Christ, and it is a love we should share practically with others.
